dearth day

we once beneath the sky were one and all
beyond the reach of time that river flowed

this office that i sit in once a hill
when our ancestors walked instead of rode

we creatures change the world as we exist
this is not new but has been ever true

for every gain much more is ever missed
we do not see the harm in what we do

alas, though, this is more than what we say
our cheap symbolic victories aside

we once beneath the sky were granted sway
and turned abusive groom
to our fair
